How to Turn PDF to Fillable Form Automatically on Mac

PDFelement Professional supports creating interactive forms automatically with one click, which can dramatically improve your efficiency. If you have a non-interactive PDF form containing blank lines and tables, the document is not a fillable form and will not be useable.

  • After opening it in our program, you can click the "Form" > "More" icon and select the "Form Field Recognition" button to recognize the blanks and tables automatically, then you will get the fillable fields.
The form field recognition operation cannot be undone.
